Funko swings in with ‘Batman ’66’ Vinyl Idolz series

vinyl-group-shot

After releasing Pop! and Dorbz collectibles based on Batman ’66, Funko has tuned back in at the same Bat-time, same Bat-channel with Vinyl Idolz figures from Vinyl Sugar inspired by the classic television series.

Arriving in October, the collection features 8-inch versions of Adam West’s Batman, Burt Wad’s Robin, Yvonne Craig’s Batgirl and Cesar Romero’s Joker, with the Clown Prince of Crime most closely resembling his TV counterpart. Still, there’s something almost charming about the Boy Wonder’s glassy-eyed stare.

While we know we’re not supposed to touch Lola, Funko is making it tough to resist with this upcoming addition to its Pop! Rides line.

Arriving in October, the new Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. collectible features Director Phil Coulson with his prized possession, the high-flying, flamethrowing 1962 Chevrolet Corvette better known as Lola. And, yes, Director Coulson, we realize Lola’s not just a collectible.

Funko unveils first ‘Batman v Superman’ toys

funko-bvs-cropped

Funko may have saved the best for last, concluding 10 waves of Comic-Con International exclusives with the debut of the first toys tied to next year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

They’re a Pop! Heroes two-pack, featuring bobblehead figures of the Dark Knight and the Man of Steel (the former with a Batarang, the latter in flight). Funko isn’t offering a preorder option this year, so collectors will have to wait in line at the convention, and hope supplies hold out.

Agent Carter fans will have to wait until early 2016 for the continued adventures of everyone’s favorite Strategic Scientific Reserve agent, but only until August to get their hands on the Pop! Marvel Peggy Carter figure.

Funko has unveiled the 3.75-inch bobble-head, which strikes a formidable pose, complete with sharp blue suit, red fedora and vial of Steve Rogers’ blood. Hopefully Howard Stark and Edwin Jarvis will follow.

Funko’s Classic Marvel Dorbz figures are, well, adorable

When you’ve recovered from the cuteness overdose induced by those pint-sized Guardians of the Galaxy and Batman Family figures, Funko and Vinyl Sugar have another fix waiting: the new line of Classic Marvel Dorbz.

Debuting in August, the 3-inch vinyl figures capture Marvel heroes and villains, ranging from Spider-Man to Mystique and Scarlet Witch to Iron Man, all in their classic comic book costumes. Hence the name “Classic Marvel Dorbz.”

Did someone say chimichanga? Funko rolls out Deadpool’s truck

funko-deadpool-cropped

Amid the seemingly endless parade of Avengers: Age of Ultron tie-ins, one very important release — perhaps the most important — has largely slipped beneath the radar (well, mine, in any case): Deadpool’s Chimichanga Truck from Funko’s Pop! Vinyl Rides line.

Showcased in February at Toy Fair 2015, the truck — emblazoned with a “Deadpool’s Chimichangas” logo — comes complete with a removable 3 3/4-inch Deadpool figure that holds a sword in one hand, and grips a delicious chimichanga in the other.

funko-scarlet-witch-cropped

Add one more figure to Funko’s Avengers: Age of Ultron Pop! Vinyl series: the Scarlet Witch.

Arriving in August, long after most of the others have debuted, Wanda joins a lineup that so far features Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, the Hulk, Ultron, The Vision, Hawkeye and Black Widow, plus the Marvel Collector Corps-exclusive Hulkbuster.

Now we’re only waiting for Quicksilver, who seems to be taking his time for once …

Shortly after announcing a line of Batman Dorbz figures, Funko targeted The CW’s “Arrow” and “The Flash” for a new series of ReAction figures to be released later this year.

Arrow, Black Canary, the Dark Archer, Deathstroke, Flash, Reverse Flash and Captain Cold are among several characters from the shows that can be found in this ReAction figure lineup, which models its look on the popular action figure format from the ’80s and ’90s.

Funko’s new Batman Dorbz figures are Gotham’s cutest

dorbz-bat-cast

On the teeny-tiny heels of those Guardians of the Galaxy figures, Funko and Vinyl Sugar have announced a Batman Dorbz series that manages to make even Killer Croc look cuddly.

Set for release in July, the series of 3-inch vinyl figures also boasts Batman, Robin, Batgirl, Harley Quinn and the Penguin, all sporting that irresistible smile. The Joker is curiously absent, but maybe he’ll pop up in a later wave.

Funko’s pint-sized ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ figures are a-Dorbz

dorbz-gotg

If ever there were an appropriately named toy line, it’s the pint-sized Guardians of the Galaxy Dorbz series from Funko and Vinyl Sugar. Dorbz!

Showcased last month at Toy Fair and now available for preorder, the collection of 3-inch vinyl figures not only includes the team from Marvel’s 2014 blockbuster — Rocket Raccoon, Gamora, Groot, Drax and Star-Lord, with and without mask — but also Ronan, Nebula, Korath, The Collector and Yondu (who resembles Sam the Snowman from Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer). That’s a refreshingly broad lineup, even without Thanos or, say, Nova Prime (come on, who doesn’t want a Glenn Close collectible figure?).

Despite some initial concerns among fans, it turns out that Funko will release a Black Widow figure as part of its previously announced Avengers: Age of Ultron Pop! Vinyl series.

Arriving in May, with new batons in hand, Natasha joins Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Hulk, Hawkeye, Vision and Ultron (plus the Hulkbuster offered exclusively through the new Marvel Collector Corps). There’s still no sign of Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, however.
